Question Of The Day

What is your favourite candy?


My absolute favourite candy in the whole wide world is peanut M&M’s. I also like them cold, so I keep them in the fridge until I’m ready to inhale eat them. But since they’re jam-packed with calories, I only treat myself to these once in a blue moon. Yes, I do have that kind of discipline.

Confession: I keep them hidden from my family, so I don’t have to share. And I don’t feel guilty. Not one bit.

What about you? Do you have a favourite candy?

    1. The Reese's is a favourite of my husband's. I don't think I've eaten candy taffy.

  4. I'm addicted to Reese's peanut butter cups! (But peanut M&Ms are not far behind on my list.)

    1. My husband shares his Reese's cups, which are favourites of his, but I'm more of a peanut M&Ms kind of girl :)

  6. I like the Lindt chocolate bars, have you tried salted caramel? When I was a kid I loved MARS bars...then I found out how fattening they are.

    1. I've never tried salted caramel. I didn't even know about it until now. Sounds interesting.

  7. I have loved Chicken Bones ever since I was a little girl. You know the ones -- bright pink cinnamon candy on the outside and a thin marrow of chocolate inside. I don't know if they're made anywhere but here in Canada by Ganongs and Nutty Club.

    1. I have never EVER had one of those. And I'm closing in on half a century old. Somehow, they have escaped me :)

  8. Cadbury's Mint Chocolate bars. I almost cry when I eat a square. Sooo good.

  9. I've rarely met a candy I don't like! I miss some of the old-fashioned ones. I went on a humbug hunt in England last May and found them. I hadn't had a humbug in decades. I practically ODed in them while I was in London. I have one or two of the individual dark Dove chocolates every day ~ carefully divided into four quarters which I eat one at a time. Yes, I have that kind of control! LOL ~ one chocolate at a time, over and over! Have a good one!

    1. Hahaha...I can just imagine the look on your face as you devoured that candy!

      Nice to see that you have that control like I do, Louise! Now that I'm in my middle years, I've discovered just how important that control is.

  10. Can't think of any candy I don't like - except those orange waxy Hallowe'en yucky things. Don't know if they still exist - hopefully not!

    1. I think they still exist, Francie. They are horrible!

  11. That's a hard one because I don't really have a sweet tooth per se. But, I guess I would choose aniseed balls. Don't know if you have them where you live? They're brown, round, and last for hours if you suck them just right :) Hmm ... might actually buy some later. It's been an age since I've had one!

    1. I'm exactly the same, Wendy. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, and there are literally only a handful of sweets I like. Peanut M&Ms is one of them. I've never heard of aniseed balls. And I'm not sure if we have them here. I'm curious now...I'll have to look them up.

  12. I'm not a big fan of candy, but I will eat an occasional peanut M&M if I'm offered one. I admit they can be addicting. But I never buy then for myself.

    1. They sure can be addicting, but I force myself to eat just a few.

  13. My favorite sweet stuff is peanut brittle. I don't have any discipline when it's around.

  14. Ack! I don't know ... I'm thinking though, some kind of homemade candy. With dark chocolate. Maybe some coconut.

    Okay, this is my last stop. We had Thanksgiving tonight and it was yummy. Now I'm full and sleepy.

    Zzzzzz.

    2. PPS: He also said, "Hello Martha."

    3. "Hello, Tim" *waves* Peppermint patties...hmmm... I have never tried that. I wonder what it tastes like.

      Dark chocolate with coconut! That is good. I like both flavours together or separately!

    4. Me too. I don't actually buy candy because most of the store-bought tastes like crap.

      Delete
    5. Very true! Which may be one reason why I don't have much of a sweet tooth.

    6. I will make my own from time to time though, and that's fun. But mostly, I've got my head in the oven, baking, instead.

  15. When I was a kid I liked 'Honeymoons'. It was a penny candy that had a center of hard chewy caramel and was covered in milk chocolate.
    And since they are no longer available, I have settled for VERY DARK CHOCOLATE ANYTHING!!!
    Great post Martha!

    1. That candy sounds really good, Jim. Too bad it's not around anymore. But then...there's always something new coming around. I like dark chocolate, too. I find it quite tasty. And it's certainly healthier.
